Great job to our students for participating in our Christmas card

art contest to create paintings or drawings depicting service projects based on the theme, "Christmas is Caring and Sharing." The projects will be conducted in real life by Wooten youth.


While the service projects will be volunteer, the art contest winners received awards of $100, $50 and $25 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. A great lesson in remaining focused and determined to do your best.


Thank you to Miss Jesse and other staff for conducting the art contest. Great job to all Wooten students who participated. 


Thank you to our designer Pepperdine alum and former Pepperdine Service Leadership Project intern Joshua Gray.
